The 21-year-old right-back has been ever-present in the Eagles first team this year, barring time spent out through injury, and has made 31 appearances in all competitions.

The award, voted for by his fellow professionals, recognises Clyne's significant contribution to a campaign which has seen Palace reach a Carling Cup semi-final and steer clear of the relegation zone.
